Each hour of the Chant for Peace is led by a different spiritual tradition. There are times of seated chanting and times of circumambulating the monastery. Anyone and everyone are invited to attend for any length of time. There are beds available for napping and a buffet table available for refreshment throughout the event.

Join us at Ecotrust’s Natural Capital Center, a hub for ideas and urban community, for a unique series of free outdoor concerts on First Thursdays this Summer (7/02, 8/06, 9/05). The concerts feature outstanding local performers and street fair-style booths fostering environmental awareness and community engagement. On July 2nd the theme is climate and features Portland Cello Project. Our second concert is August 6th with the theme water and forests and features Orquestra Pacifico Tropical & Mimicking Birds. Our concert series concludes September 3rd with the theme food and will feature Horse Feathers & School of Rock. Sundown is quintessential summer in Portland – equal parts indie concert, block party, and classic Portland street fair. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a street fair-style Showcase focused on a theme—climate (July), water and forests (August), and food (September). Each Showcase will feature over 40 interactive booths that connect attendees with inspiring organizations working in the Pacific Northwest to deliver inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. For the first time the series will also line-up with First Thursdays, a 31-year-old tradition when the whole neighborhood comes to life with arts and culture. Ecotrust is inviting a host of creative performers to expand and deepen the series’ cultural engagement, from the Portland Cello Project bringing a whole evening of the famed “All Ages Dance Party” (July) to School of Rock (September). At every show, ice cream bombast and visionary Morgan Street Theatre will dish up one-of-a-kind desserts. Expect the unexpected. These family-friendly events also include the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by Metro Portland’s Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Frosty beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza and Laughing Planet. The series will be powered by a green power source.

The Homer Davenport Community Festival and The Wooden Nickel are Proud to present the Fifth annual Homer Kick Off Party! Held in historic Silverton's tree-filled Coolidge-McClaine City Park. We will be kicking off this huge community party at 7pm, featuring Lloyd Jones Band! Portland, Oregon roots artist Lloyd Jones has recorded six critically acclaimed albums, toured internationally, and racked up dozens of major awards and accolades. He’s a relentless road dog, hitting festival stages, Delbert’s annual Sandy Beaches Cruises (he’s been a regular on six winter cruises), and clubs all across the land to enthusiastic crowds who can’t get enough of his swampy blues, his backporch picking, his serious-as-anthrax funk, soul, roadhouse two-beats, and old-school rhythm and blues (back before the R&B tag was somehow appropriated for other musical purposes, apparently when we weren’t looking). Yet he may be the most invisible, best-kept roots/blues/Americana secret on the contemporary scene. Jones is a master of the soulful understatement, the raw growl, and the groove. From his roots in muddy Oregon soil, he’s forged a 30-plus-year career as an impassioned singer and fierce guitar slinger, a clever and soulful songwriter, a bandleader, record producer, and an almost strident torchbearer for all that’s true and good about America’s music. Jones is his own true artist who works diligently at pushing American roots music forward. What he does, he says, is “combine New Orleans rhythms, the simplicity of Memphis music, and the rawness of the blues, all for the 21st century. This music is not about louder and faster. It’s about time, meter, groove. I thought Muddy and Walter and those guys were pushing the envelope in their era. They were using effects, they were inventing their own sound. They were modern. I want to look at it in a contemporary way.” The gist is all the same — Lloyd Jones is the total package. The gates open at 6:00 pm with beer, wine and food! And this year, admission is FREE!

Silverton's famous son, Homer Davenport (1867-1912), was an internationally renowned cartoonist in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Homer, left Silverton, fulfilling his desire to become an editorial cartoonist... inspired by his mother's appreciation for the art form. His legacy, however, endures. Homer Davenport Days began in Silverton in 1980. Every year since, the celebrations have kept Silverton's young and old alike in high spirits. The Homer Davenport Community Festival (August 7, 8, & 9) which is coordinated by the Silverton Rotary Club strives to put the 'Homer' back in 'Homer Days.' To that end, we are reaching into the Homer Davenport archives of writings, photos and illustrations to bring our community's past to life. We plan to celebrate and honor our heritage! Information about the festival can be found on the "Homer Page," (linked below) There were numerous articles about Silverton's business community; it's schools; surrounding farms; notable citizens of the day, and of course a glowing tribute to Homer Davenport, by then gone for just eleven years. Once again, The Davenport Project will provide a historical focus for the festival, as we continue to celebrate our heritage from yesterday, today and tomorrow. This year's festival promises to be bigger than ever, while keep our uniquely "home town festival" feel. On tap again for this year: Parade, 10K Fun-Run, The Davenport Races, Food Court, Live Music, Lion’s Club Breakfast, Davenport Cartoon Display, Crafts Fair, Fly Wheels Classic Car Cruise-In, Combined Silverton High School Alumni reunion, Tennis Tournament, Beer Garden, and much much more!

PROPER (People Reaching Other People Expecting Restoration), has been serving the community of North Portland for the past 20+ years. They are now asking all of us in the City of Portland to join them in a gathering of all faiths and non-faiths, local Law Enforcement, and Community Activists to come together and celebrate our differences. In a time when society is faced with its most complex situations, from Religious Tolerance & Unity, Racial Equality, to LGBT Affirmation, we need to be the example of unity in the midst of chaos. The world is under siege, not by an enemy that can be seen by the naked eye, but one that can only be seen in the Spirit. Prejudice, hatred, bigotry, and despair have plagued our land and are robbing us of our natural inheritance. With this current state of the world there is a need to come together as a people and pray and send good vibes into the atmosphere. PROPER's mission has been to unite communities across all lines to include the groups and communities of forgotten leaders of our past who laid the foundation that make unity possible for us to celebrate our differences.

Silverton's famous son, Homer Davenport (1867-1912), was an internationally renowned cartoonist in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Homer, left Silverton, fulfilling his desire to become an editorial cartoonist... inspired by his mother's appreciation for the art form. His legacy, however, endures. Homer Davenport Days began in Silverton in 1980. Every year since, the celebrations have kept Silverton's young and old alike in high spirits. The Homer Davenport Community Festival (August 7, 8, & 9) which is coordinated by the Silverton Rotary Club strives to put the 'Homer' back in 'Homer Days.' To that end, we are reaching into the Homer Davenport archives of writings, photos and illustrations to bring our community's past to life. We plan to celebrate and honor our heritage! Information about the festival can be found on the "Homer Page," (linked below) There were numerous articles about Silverton's business community; it's schools; surrounding farms; notable citizens of the day, and of course a glowing tribute to Homer Davenport, by then gone for just eleven years. Once again, The Davenport Project will provide a historical focus for the festival, as we continue to celebrate our heritage from yesterday, today and tomorrow. This year's festival promises to be bigger than ever, while keep our uniquely "home town festival" feel. On tap again for this year: Parade, 10K Fun-Run, The Davenport Races, Food Court, Live Music, Lion’s Club Breakfast, Davenport Cartoon Display, Crafts Fair, Fly Wheels Classic Car Cruise-In, Combined Silverton High School Alumni reunion, Tennis Tournament, Beer Garden, and much much more! Watch these pages for updates and future announcements!

For the last 20 years, notorious activists the Yes Men have staged outrageous and hilarious hoaxes to draw international attention to corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits and a lack of shame, these iconoclastic revolutionaries lie their way into business events and government functions to expose the dangers of letting greed run our world. In their third cinematic outing (after The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World), they are now well into their 40s, and their mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge they’ve ever faced: climate change. More than the first two films, The Yes Men Are Revolting is as much a character study as it is an entertaining depiction of their latest interventions. Revealing the real people behind the ruses, at its heart lies a hopeful message about fighting for change. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

With a shared spotlight on Animation, Proof Of Concepts and Transmedia Content Creators as well as Feature length and Shorts we have crafted categories to serve the wide range of New Media content. We will also be offering workshops and presentations to educate and entertain on the art and science of film-making. Participants will be invited to present on their process and have an opportunity to meet and greet the attendees. We will give high educational and networking value to the guests and filmmakers of the festival with clear, direct, truthful information given in the interests of learning to make a living in this industry. Friday August 14th 4pm SID YIDDISH is a short documentary about a recovering manic depressive whose discovery of performance art saved him from the brink of suicide. Sid may very well be Chicago’s best-studied Tuvan throat singer, and his improv symphonies are well-known underground. He even recently appeared alongside Nick Cannon on national TV, auditioning for America’s Got Talent. As his 50th birthday draws near, Sid (along with his closest friends and fellow performers) reflects on the journey that turned Charles Bernstein, reporter, into Sid Yiddish, performer. The director draws on live performance footage, interviews and situational material to sketch a portrait of a man caught between two lives: Only if Sid can reconcile his past with his present will his 50th birthday party be a success. Friday August 14th 5:15pm THE GIRL WHO LOVED ANIMALS The story of teenage activist Kitty Jones and her fight for animal rights. We see Kitty as she speaks out in defense of animals, volunteers at a cat neutering clinic, hands out vegan recipes at farmer's markets and gives her time to the rescued animals at the Precious Life Animal Sanctuary in Washington State. Friday Aust 14th 8pm DAR HE: The Lynching of Emmett Till, is the TRUE STORY crafted from the public record: a transfixing dramatization of the historic interviews and events surrounding the murder that became a lightning rod for moral outrage and pivotal in inspiring a whole generation of young people to commit to social change in the 1950s. In an acting tour de force, one man performs 36 roles in the telling of the Emmett Till tragedy. Experience the story, trial, and unbelievable confessions of those accused of Emmett's murder in this riveting drama. “A masterful performance by Mike Wiley.” –20th Pan African Film Festival. August 15th 3pm ONE HUNDRED MULES WALKING THE LOS ANGELES AQUEDUCT Artbound travels with artist Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio as they perform 'One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct,' a commemorative artist action to reconnect Los Angeles to its water supply by walking the entire 240-mile route of the Los Angeles Aqueduct with a team of 100 hundred mules. The action marked the 100-year anniversary of the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct, which started bringing water from the Owens Valley to Los Angeles on Nov. 5, 1913. August 15th 6pm THE SHATTERED MIND, based in New York, is a psychodrama/surreal story about a hard-of-hearing teenager who juggles with family, peers and culture conflicts, while in search of her own sexual and identity freedom, and self-realization. August 15th 8pm LAND OF LEOPOLD Leopold Rawlins is a troubled drifter suffering from a bad past and worse present. Living in & out of prison and out on the streets, Leopold winds up being deemed insane by the state and sent to the Milton Way House. Searching for redemption, Leopold uncovers new unlikely friends and an adventure that tests his limits.

Students from Japan (and possibly Korea and Taiwan also) will be eager to practice their English that they have been learning at the Pacific International Academy at the Marylhurst campus. They will be coming to the White Oak Savanna to work for two hours in removing invasive plants. Would you like to team up with one of these students and then go to a nearby farm to have lunch (please bring your own brown bag lunch)? It is fun to have them practice their newly acquired English and work alongside American volunteers. The trip to the farm which is only 10 minutes away is always fun, too. We hope that you will join us with this hands across the water experience and do something good for the earth. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal.

All Ages Afrikan Hiphop Caravan Benefit Show With Mic Crenshaw & Rasheed Jamal Come party with Hip Hop artist Mic Crenshaw and Rasheed Jamal and help raise funds for their November trip to various countries in Africa. Hosted by African Hip Hop collectives. $10 donation at the door but NO ONE will be turned away for lack of funds. www.hiphopcaravan.net ---------- Mic Crenshaw "In total, Mic Crenshaw’s music is not only a collective of juicy jams and skillful rhymes. This guy has made his mark on culture. Now it’s time that he garners critical mass to spread his positivity to the world at large." - Billboard Born on the Southside of Chicago, and raised both there and in Minneapolis, Michael Crenshaw is a world class MC and poet who has emerged on the national - and international stage. As a teen in the late 80's, Mic was embroiled in the violent streets of Minneapolis, leading groups to physically confront white supremacist gangs that were enforcing their will at local parks and social scenes. After beating back the neo-nazis, the violence remained, both in the streets and from authorities. Crenshaw decided it was time to escape it all and moved west to Portland, OR. Crenshaw says, "I wanted something new. [At the time] my ties with the streets were still pretty strong, and my social life involved drinking and fighting. I was ready for a change." In Portland, he quickly became one of the most respected artists in the Northwest. Beginning in '94, Crenshaw was the front man for the beloved Portland live Hip Hop band, Hungry Mob. In 2001, Crenshaw won The Portland Poetry Slam Championship and went on to finish as a national finalist. The Portland Mercury writes, 'Mic Crenshaw is a pretty mythic character... (with the Lifesavas) two of the very best hip-hop acts in PDX”. In 2009, Mic released his debut solo CD, "Thinking Out Loud", which spent 10 weeks in the top 10 on College Music Journal's (CMJ) National Radio Hip Hop Charts, peaking at number 4. "Mic Crenshaw blends his smooth flow with a street-hardened attitude, effortlessly spitting rhymes over a menagerie of horns, drums and keys. Fifteen years of making music, helping those less fortunate and social activism has made Mic Crenshaw a force worthy of a new generation of listeners." – College Music Journal Crenshaw’s 2nd solo release, ‘Under The Sun,’ was released in the winter of 2010. The single ‘Yeah’ peaked at #2 on CMJ’s Hip Hop Charts. "'Under the Sun,' serves up potent post-millennial rapping. Crenshaw’s flow ranges from a sensual ooze to machine-gun rapid-fire spitfire; and his musical backdrops are always masterfully creative." - Billboard In Portland, Mic's community efforts expanded from the local - to the global. At the close of a Human Rights conference he attended in Rwanda, Crenshaw was confronted by local activists. They said that in America there are computers and they need his help to get them computers. As a result, upon returning to Portland, he enlisted help from an educational colleague, Morgan Delaney. As a result, Globalfam was born. Globalfam is now a full entertainment company, record label and lifestyle company in one. It houses and produces Crenshaw's music. As well as, partners with the non-profit Education WithOut Borders (EWOB) to manage the community projects that Crensahw and Globalfam are involved in. Crenshaw now serves as EWOB's President. Seven years later, the request for computers has blossomed into a full computer education center in Burundi, Central Africa. Over 800 people have received training, and the center is now expanding, generating revenue and creating jobs by adding a computer repair shop. It is 100% locally managed and staffed. EWOB and Globalfam, along with its supporters, have been the sole outside sponsor. EWOB helps education, music and art initiatives in Portland and their work in Africa, as well serving as an umbrella for the Portland Books For Prisoners Chapter. Crenshaw is currently the Political Director of Hip Hop Congress and the Lead U.S. Organizer for the Afrikan Hip Hop Caravan. The Caravan toured six African cities in 2012 and will tour 10 cities between Cape Town and Cairo in 2014. The Caravan engages each city with a show in the city center, a Hip Hop Symposium and a free show for the youth in a township or ghetto. Crenshaw was invited to be part of the Caravan after playing the Shoko International Festival in Harare Zimbabwe in 2012. The Shoko Festival 2012- Crenshaw played in the Glen Norah Township, Zimbabwe with Zim's legendary Ba Shupi. Crenshaw is currently recording music for his 3rd solo album, releasing the first single 'Superheroes' ft. Dead Prez. 'Superheroes' peaked at #2 on Rapattacklives.com singles chart. -

Kundalini yoga uses postures, chanting and meditation to help us connect to the divine teacher within. This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins. Kundalini yoga can help to clear subconscious conditioning that no longer serves us. It can be helpful for those living with mental illness and addiction. It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10. Nobody turned away for lack of funds. For more info about Kundalini yoga or this class, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/chariotoftheheartyoga

Join us at Ecotrust’s Natural Capital Center, a hub for ideas and urban community, for a unique series of free outdoor concerts on First Thursdays this Summer (7/02, 8/06, 9/05). The concerts feature outstanding local performers and street fair-style booths fostering environmental awareness and community engagement. On July 2nd the theme is climate and features Portland Cello Project. Our second concert is August 6th with the theme water and forests and features Orquestra Pacifico Tropical & Mimicking Birds. Our concert series concludes September 3rd with the theme food and will feature Horse Feathers & School of Rock. Sundown is quintessential summer in Portland – equal parts indie concert, block party, and classic Portland street fair. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a street fair-style Showcase focused on a theme—climate (July), water and forests (August), and food (September). Each Showcase will feature over 40 interactive booths that connect attendees with inspiring organizations working in the Pacific Northwest to deliver inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. For the first time the series will also line-up with First Thursdays, a 31-year-old tradition when the whole neighborhood comes to life with arts and culture. Ecotrust is inviting a host of creative performers to expand and deepen the series’ cultural engagement, from the Portland Cello Project bringing a whole evening of the famed “All Ages Dance Party” (July) to School of Rock (September). At every show, ice cream bombast and visionary Morgan Street Theatre will dish up one-of-a-kind desserts. Expect the unexpected. These family-friendly events also include the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by Metro Portland’s Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Frosty beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza and Laughing Planet. The series will be powered by a green power source.

Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon documents the history of conflict between the Portland police and community members throughout the past fifty years. The film features personal stories of resistance told by victims of police misconduct, the families of people who were killed by police, and members of Portland’s reform and abolition movements. Utilizing meditative footage taken at sites of police violence, experimental filmmaking techniques, and archival newsreel, Arresting Power creates a space for understanding the impacts of police violence and imagining a world without police. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

Help us keep our Bike Fleet in good condition and working order! Each year we teach thousands of Portland 4th and 5th graders to bike safely on the street with these bikes. They need routine maintenance every month to keep the parts working smoothly. So if you’ve got mechanic skills, come join us for some greasy fun on the third Saturday of every month from 10 am to 2 pm. Directions: It's on the NE corner of NE 21st Ct. and Pacific Avenue. It's just northeast of the Sunshine Dairy, but still south of I-84. Our shop entrance is on the NW corner of that block, through the chain link fence. Please sign up if you can make it and bring your own coffee cup if you like hot coffee! Thanks to Grand Central Bakery for providing snacks for us. *Maintenance Days are usually scheduled for the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10-2pm at the Parks Building. So mark your calendars and invite a handy friend!

GAINING GROUND, a feature-length documentary film by Elaine Velazquez and Barbara Bernstein, tells the stories of farmers making extraordinary changes in their farming practices so they can feed their local communities sustainably grown produce and grains. From farms in Oregon’s fertile Willamette Valley to underserved communities of color in Richmond, California, GAINING GROUND reveals the tenacity and courage of these diverse urban and rural farmers, committed to serving and empowering their communities. The documentary interweaves experiences of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning from grass seed to organic grains. Gaining Ground instills in its viewers the potential to create change on a personal, local and global scale. Our goal is to inspire people to make choices in their own lives that support local and sustainable food and the farmers who are working to take back our food system.

The documentary interweaves experiences of urban farmer-activists in inner city Richmond, California; a small family farm in rural Oregon converting from a commodity dairy to a sustainably grown produce farm; and a large farm in the Willamette Valley transitioning from grass seed to organic grains. Gaining Ground instills in its viewers the potential to create change on a personal, local and global scale. Our goal is to inspire people to make choices in their own lives that support local and sustainable food and the farmers who are working to take back our food system.

The Beatles--the world's most famous rock and roll band--travel from their home town of Liverpool to London to perform in a television broadcast. Along the way they must rescue Paul's unconventional grandfather from various misadventures and drummer Ringo goes missing just before the crucial concert. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month.

Dirty Queer is an X rated open mic: a place to celebrate sexuality and strut your creative stuff! Hosted by renegade writer and poet Sossity Chiricuzio, Dirty Queer has proven itself to be a thought provoking evening of excitement, passion, laughter and full body shivers. We're looking for queer erotic entertainers of all sorts: dancers, jugglers, singers, musicians, comics, poets, storytellers, magicians, gender performers ... if you can do it in 5 minutes or less (w/ minimal props/equip), this open mic's for you! We average over 120 people a month, so come early if you want a seat. Everyone who attends has a chance to win door prizes from local businesses, as well as a percentage off items at our very own feminist bookstore and host, IOW!

**this page now pre-event page for Fall MAM PDX 2015** MARCH AGAINST MONSANTO SPRING 2015 RALLY HERE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1580741828808351/ March Against Monsanto #MAM is a global call to action aimed at informing the public, examining the long-term health risks of genetically engineered foods and the pesticides they use, and demanding genetically engineered foods be labeled so that we can make informed decisions about what we eat and feed our families. Our Food, Our Choice: We have the right to know what's in our food and what we feed our families. Last year, over 400 cities around the world participated in this day of action bringing hundreds of thousands of people into the streets to March Against Monsanto. In Portland, more than 5000 people marched through downtown streets. Why We March: • Protect bees and monarchs from pesticides that are killing our pollinators. • Protect our clean water. • Protect the health of children and elders whose immune systems are more vulnerable to pesticide residue. • Support local farms and farmers. • Honor our agricultural heritage and the economic value we all enjoy from farms and food. • Demand more oversight and accountability from agencies we employ to safeguard our food and health. http://www.facebook.com/events/883968378332574/

INSIDE HER SEX is a thought-provoking, feature-length documentary that explores female sexuality and shame through the eyes and experiences of three women from different walks of life, each brave enough to chart her own course of sexual discovery. Through the varied, candid and intensely personal stories of these three women this film will delve to the core of their sexuality to the deep, intimate, explosive, powerful place that is INSIDE HER SEX. The Clinton Street Theater Sex Worker series celebrates the accomplishments of sex worker film and video makers by screening relevant works about sex workers and the sex industries from around the world. The films focus on sex workers' rights; organizing efforts and working conditions for strippers; global sex work and sex work as a labor issue on the international agenda; sex workers as artists; queer sex workers; sex work and gender identities; portraits of strippers, prostitutes, doms, madams and more.
